AS ALWAYS CLICK ON ANY PIC TO ENLARGE.
Note: I like my stuff at my fingertips, out in the open. If you can't see it you won't use it.
As promised a picture for return to crafty space.... just more stuff. Here they are...
The left leg of the creative station or tool central. I use the re-purposed 1970s cassette tape holder to store my ink pads. I only have approx. one-half of the ink pads SU offers in the full size pad but I have all of the classic stampin spots. The spots keep me in business until I can collect all of the full size pads.
I only have one or two full size craft ink pads one of them is the white craft which I love and is definitely a must have stampin staple. I am a SU demonstrator but consider myself a hobbyist for now. So, for my purposes, the stampin spots are plenty for me. I also house all of my misc tiny tools in a typical office supply drawer organizer open top on desk. PICTURE 1 SIDENOTE TRIVIA: I AM SURE THIS IS NO NEWSFLASH TO MOST BUT DID YOU KNOW THAT THE DOTS ON THE ENDS OF SU FULL SIZE INK PADS I.E. . - .. - ...- .... Corresponds with the SU color families One dot is BB, two dots are EE etc... I DID NOT KNOW THIS UNTIL RECENTLY. Try and stay with me....
I just organized scraps via hanging file folders (only 4), one for each color family. These hanging files are house on the floor just under this table.PICTURE 8 & 9 - A couple of other misc purchases lately. I finally picked up the MS starburst label punch. I can think of a bunch of uses for this new tool.
Second new punch. This one is a corner flower punch from punchbunch. I was actually looking for a punch that would punch this size flower because I wanted to use them in every color to embellish my tractor ATC on an earlier post. This turned out to be perfect. I also used micro dots from A Muse in the center of the flowers. I am not going to post another picture of those tractor ATCs. But just know that I further embellied them with a paper flower from this punch on each flower in the cart with a matching A Muse micro dot eye candy. This was one of my most exciting finds. But then I heard that SU has 35 new punches in the upcoming Catty. Yikes should have waited. I love it anyway
PICTURE 9 - Michaels clear stamps... ok I have to admit I don't see what all of the hoolalaboola is about but I went ahead and got a couple of sets just to say I did. They're ok for $1? Maybe it's because there aren't any left when I shop. I picked these generic ones up to add to my collection.
Last but not least...recent shopping excursion with a stalker friend we visited a different LSS we had never been to (lots of Rosie's Stuff). I tagged along as I wasn't in the market for anything at the time. I got in a calico mood so while I waited for my friend to checkout I snagged these beauties. I'm thinking this will go with anything easypeasy Crafty Secrets. I wish I could get to stampin SOON. Don't you love them. They are so beautiful. It was just an assortment with no specific project in mine. More eye candy for ME. LAST BUT NOT LEAST
